What to expect
Spend some time with our local expert on this panoramic introduction to Buenos Aires. Your city exploration starts with the symbol of the city, the Obelisk. This giant monument was built in 1936 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the city. One of the city’s unique features is the many beautiful open squares of colonial Spanish descent. You’ll fall in love with Plaza de Mayo, Plaza San Martín, or Plaza Congreso. The avenues can be equally impressive sights including favorites like Corrientes, Mayo and 9 de Julio.
The financial and commercial areas of Buenos Aires are home to many impressive sights and you can’t miss the home of the Argentinean’s favorite past time, the numerous massive soccer stadiums throughout the city. Buenos Aires is home to a lively multi-cultural blend of generations old families of a heavily European-South American blend and we will travel through their neighborhoods to give you a feel for the city and the people who call it home. Discover the unique architecture in historic neighborhoods like La Boca, San Telmo and Montserrat. We will also have the opportunity to explore the Ecological Reserve.
Enjoy the finer things in life in the elegant neighborhoods like Palermo, where we will have some time to explore “Palermo Soho” and “Palermo Hollywood”. We will then move on to Recoleta, home to the famed cemetary. Between neighborhoods, you’ll enjoy the beauty of nature interspersed at places like Lezama Park and Tres de Febrero Park.
Highlights: Obelisk, Plaza de Mayo, Plaza San Martin, Plaza Congreso, Avenues: Corrientes, De Mayo, 9 de Julio, Historical Neighborhoods, Elegant Neighborhoods, Palermo Soho and Hollywood, Parks Lezama, Tres de Febrero and The Ecological Reserve, Financial and Commercial Areas and Soccer Stadium.
After the city tour we continue visiting "Delta del Tigre".
Just outside the city of Buenos Aires we find the Parana River Delta, a peaceful area home to a wide variety of plants and animals.
We begin our journey by traveling along the Rio de Plata, the widest river in the world, to the small town of San Isidro. We will learn about the history and people who live in this area. Passing historical places such as the Presidential Residence located just outside the neighborhood of Olivos.
In San Isidoro we will have some free time to explore the city center and market. This is a great opportunity to get some shopping in as well as a bite to eat. After our free time we will return to our comfortable and air conditioned bus to head to Tigre.
Upon arrival in the town of Tigre we will board a boat and sail along the delta to explore its islands. The life of the "isleños" (people who live on the islands of the Delta) is very unique. Our local guide will fill you in the history and lifestyle of Tigre. This relaxing leg of our journey will be a treat for your senses. Take in the views while sipping on your complimentary coffee and alfajores (traditional Argentinean cookie).
Once we have toured the islands we will head back to the bus for a relaxing ride back to the capitol city of Buenos Aires.
Highlights: city tour + Beautiful Parana River Delta, Enchanting Island Town of Tigre, Residential Neighborhoods and Presidential Residence (Quinta de Olivos).
